Aprilaire model 50 current sensing relay won't close

If the relay is not closing then it must be replaced. It works by sensing the current through the common wire of the blower motor.

I installed a new Aprilaire 700 and everything looks normal except there isn't ant water flow, I am not sure if this is the solenoid or transformer problems?

Check if you are getting 24 volts at the transformer, if you are then appy power directly to the solenoid valve from transformer, you should here the solenoid valve click and let water through. If not replace the solenoid valve. If the valve works by giving power directly from transformer the check the wiring, humidistat, and current sensing relay/sail switch.

Aprilaire 700. It works on fan on mode but not otherwise. It's never on and the humidity reading is always way below the setting. It should turn on automatically to bring the humidity up, right?

It appears your Aprilaire model 700 is wired to only operate when your HVAC fan is operated by your thermostat. Your HVAC installer can wire the humidifier control to operate the humidifier during a heat call, fan call or to turn on the fan when there is a need for humidification. Please contact your HVAC installer to have them change the wiring.

Keep running

You should have a #50 relay hooked up to the main blower assembley to turn the 24 volts on and off with the blower to the humidistat. Alot of humidifiers sold do not tell you about the #50 relay. They assume that you are a hvac pro and you aready know about.
Good luck

Humidifier control .

if humidifier was wired into thermostat circuit for power instead of seperate transformer , this can happen. you need to see if you voltage going to the solenoid valve. if you do , and it isn't opening, the valve is bad . this is assuming that it is using a # 50 relay to come on only when the fan runs . . make sure the water valve is open
